My LO spits up a lot and so sometimes I keep his bib on when he goes to sleep. This is to protect his clothing from getting wet.

I read that there's a risk of strangulation so I try to take his bib off at night time when I'm less likely to check up on him.

Does anyone else leave the bib on when LO sleeps?

I don't. Olli spits up a lot, but I take the bib off before putting him in his crib/pack 'n play. I'm also paranoid when it comes to safety, so take that with a grain of salt, lol.

I have...not all the time... never even thought of it as a safety thing.. Zeke def spits up a lot and having the bib on can save at least one trip a night to change his outfit..

I never did. It always freaked me out that it would get hung up. Wyatt was my only baby that really spit up though. I don't even use bibs for Caroline.

i never do. however if you do, you can just rest it there without snapping it or velcroing it together. our babies are not moving much right now so just resting the bib on their chest will work and will be safer since its not snapped together? maybe?

i would put them in a fleece sleeper instead, since it wicks the moisture away from baby's skin. a bib just doesn't seem safe at all to me.

I will let her take a nap in the swing or glider seat with it on. I have forgotten a couple times but she was in the bed with me. I do take it off though.

Zoey spits up sometimes. Every night, I just put a lightweight burp cloth, or blanket underneath of her. That way, if she spits up, it protects the bedding. Clothes can be changed easily. I don't mind that.

Not only is strangulation a risk (probably very unlikely) but the bib can also flip up and cover their face. I wouldn't do it personally- I just don't do it.

I've left it on in the swing - but I make sure it comes off when he goes to bed. I'm paranoid too!

Even though, MJ spits up quite a bit, I don't really use bibs for her. I'm just constantly wiping her with a burp cloth - I have those everywhere! I need to get bibs for her....

But with my boys, they wore bibs to nap but I did take them off for bedtime. Don't know why, just did.

good points everyone... I've been more conscious about taking his bib off. Good suggestions about using a fleece sleeper or unvelcro'ing the bib.

Gray is the same way. I FREAK out about him choking on spit-up in his sleep..adding a bib to the equation would just make me bonkers.

I think the suggestion to lay the bib on your kiddo is also a good one.

anything around the neck just seems a bit scary to me.

Don't wear your baby a bib when he/she is sleeping. It can caused harm for your little ones. It's okay to spit out, it's natural. Just think what is good and safe for your baby. Wear them a baby bib at daytime or in time that you could watch over them not at night time when you are sleeping. Always thinks that it's better to be safe.
